    In Memory of my Momma Lois

    I lay upon your breast eyes close, as the tears
    wet the gown and flow to your robe
    you place your arms around me, and i felt the touch
    feeling the last hug of your
    Motherly love.

    You now walk on the ancestor road, a star that now shine on us in the night
    and i can hear your whispers so light, "everything gonna be alright"

    When I think of you Momma my life flash before my eyes
    No matter how many walk through your kitchen
    there was always plenty in the pot, no one left hungry
    or felt alone,
    Compassion the word can best be define by you
    because
    you share
    you care
    you love
    all God creatures with tenderness

    In the garden I see the vegetable, everywhere
    flowers surround our home from the inside out

    Remembering how:
    you never said no, but always said "see what i can do"
    For the joy of having you as my Momma
    Is a blessing that have been
    Bestowed upon thee,
    so blessed I feel

    When I think of you Momma my life flash before my eyes
    I will carry your teaching, and add to your lesson
    To live life to the fullest, with compassion and love
    And leave no one hungry, in the belly or the mind
    Even now you are teaching me how to survive
    Oh Dear Heavenly Father above, thank you
    For my Momma , thank you for her love
    Thank you for giving me that last Motherly hug

    You are now with Our heavenly Father Dear Momma,
    now you can rest, and we your daughters,
    your family, your friends,
    will continue to walk the path,the baton has been pass...
    Love to you Momma...
    no longer am I sad,
    but can now celebrate your home coming
    in the comfort of our Dear Father

    Blue!!!!! I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Always treasure those last moments with her, as you will reminence and cherish all the years spent. Yea, that momma always knew how to keep both the belly and the mind well fed, didn't she? And in her way, she'll continue to do so. I lost my mom many years ago, I know of the pain. You and yours are in my prayers, as well as in my thoughts.

    oh, this is putting a lump in my throat. I am so moved by this:

    Remembering how:
    you never said no, but always said "see what i can do"


    And I'm so very glad you got that last hug. Much love to you, Blue. :heart:
